    Will they be also dethroned by wrestler-turned fighters?

    Will the dominance of wrestlers continue in the UFC?

    Aldo isn't wrestling based but he is grappling based

    Aldo is too much for any fighter at 145 now I do believe if Khabib is a serious contender and gets some really crisp striking he can beat anyone at 155 except Aldo when he moves up 👍

    Aldo loses to Mendes

    Pettis beats Gil

    Machida beats Weidman

    How exactly does Machida and Mendes win?

    Mendes couldnt get Aldo down to save his life, then when he did he got right back up.

    Apart from the time he actually did and the other time where Aldo had to hold the cage for dear life

    All I know is this: Aldo will never lose to a wrestler.

    In biased fairy-tale land where there weren't about 3 takedown attempts effortlessly defended by the Brazilian genius excluding Mendes's one successful takedown and Aldo's blatant fence grab?

    In biased fairy-tale land going 3-2 in TD attempts translates to 'couldn't get him down to save his life'?

    Fair enough, but I mean, it's not as if he didn't just get back up after Mendes actually did take him down. Because he did.

    And Aldo went 3-1 (1) in defended TDs if we're being honest (I saw that grab too but at least he never did it again).

    Doesn't matter if he didn't do it again. Mendes would've took him down without the fence grab

    Calling Jones "wrestler-based" is a real stretch.

    He's pretty much MMA-based.
